Voting Day

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase vote!


I have a bad feeling that Rob Ford is going to become Toronto’s next mayor because Joe Pantalone will eat away at George Smitherman’s numbers even though the majority do not want Ford as mayor. Toronto needs to update its archaic ‘first-past-the-post’ voting system. ‘Instant runoff voting’ where voters rank all candidates would remove the need for strategic voting and prevent vote splitting. 8 cities in the US use instant runoff voting already and 5 more have approved it for their next election.

  1. He took 47% of the votes and took more votes than David Miller did in either of his elections. Like it or not, I think the majority just elected a guy to show they’re fed up. Look at how many incumbents, who were constantly called out as trough feeders (like Sandra Bussin), got voted out as well.
